Talk by the Potentate 

Dear Nobles: — 

A distinct honor is being bestowed upon the Nobility of Islam Temple by the 
visitation of our Imperial Potentate, Noble Ernest A. Cutts, who, in company with several 
officers of the Imperial Divan and other distinguished Nobles from various parts, will be 
in our midst in San Francisco on November 24th, 23th, and 26th. Noble Cutts is a 
gentleman of the southern type, coming from Georgia, and the Nobility will agree with me 
to the man that a more charming personality is rarely found. Our Imperial Potentate will 
devote a considerable part of his San Francisco stay with the Imperial Housing Committee 
in the selection of accommodations for the Imperial Divan and representatives, and we 
are confident that he will be well pleased, not alone with what San Francisco has to offer 
but also with the progress that has been made by the San Francisco 1922 Shrine .Commit- 
tee, of which our genial Past Potentate George Filmer is the chairman, and with the 
preparation of the Imperial Council Session to be held here next June. 

/'//////^^' //./'Mf J /, 

A detailed itinerary is publidm^ elsew^here herein, to which special attention is 
invited and a generous compliance tgp|^ program observed. 

Three ceremonials have gone ii^a<9slam*s page of history since the issuance of our 
last bulletin, viz., Santa Cruz, San FrJ^fsco and Santa Rosa, and the enjoyment ef these 
affairs will remain a sweet memory to those who fended the same. Two more cere- 
monials, namely, Sacramento., on Novemb^ 2-^^ ^)^i^^ Jose on December 3rd, will 
conclude my activities as yourS^QMntate. 

The Shrine Circus which tool 
attempted by Islam or w^itnessed 1^ 
this tremendous undertaking, the inc^s^' pn 
members who worked so untiringUr'/tjlbwa 
feelings, and w^hile those giving ofVthnr e:

responsibility rested upon his shouiaeri 

storm, was the largest affair yet 
''rancisco, and in connection with 
of gratitude to those of our 
its success ln^cjbut poor indications of our 
rts are too nuif^rous to individually mention 
lost to Noble Wm. H. Worden, as the greatest 

And now, dear Nobles, as my term of office as your Potentate is rapidly coming 
to a close, let me express to each and every one of you< my heartfelt appreciation of the 
splendid co-operation and good-will that you have shown me in my efforts to make this 
year a successful one for our own Islam. Without the splendid spirit manifested by our 
Nobility my service would have indeed been a difficult task in place of the pleasure and the 
honor that you have accorded me. To our uniformed organizations, our Band, Patrol, and 
Joseans, to the various committees and especially their chairmen, to the Executive Com- 
mittees throughout our jurisdiction in the State, my heartfelt gratitude especially goes 
out. And last, but by no means least, I desire to refer to my officers of the Divan who 
so patiently and loyally stood by me and always gave me so generously of their counsel 
and assistance. For the privilege of serving you 1 have been well repaid, if for no other 
reason than that of adding so materially to my list of friendships. Nobles, I have indeed 
been richly blessed, and to my successor may I bespeak for him that devotion and generous 
co-operation w^ith which you have endowed me. May Allah bless you I

Fall and Winter Course 

Entertaining ATTRACTIONS Educational 

Announcement in our last bulletin offered this entire course of six attrac- 
tions to the Nobility and their Ladies at a total cost of $5.00 each person. 


and all the remaining attractions will appear as scheduled without any cost 
whatever to any Noble of Islam Temple or his Lady. Each Noble and one 
Lady will be admitted on his Shrine Card at the door. 

Two of the attractions have already appeared before large and well 
pleased audiences, but we have learned that our Club Room facilities are 
inadequate to accommodate all, so we have arranged to have the remaining 
attractions appear at

This was our Fall Tournament and exceeded by far any previous efforts 
in this direction, both in attendance and enjoyment. It will doubtless be 
interesting to all of our Nobles to know our "masters at the game," and we 
therefore submit the names of the successful contestants, following: 

Winner First Flight — (Champion) Noble Hermon F. Wilson; runnerup, 
Noble P. H. Clapp. Winner Second Flight — Noble M. N. Thompson; runner- 
up, Noble A. E. Bernhard. Winner Third Flight — Noble R. W, Martindale;

Gilman. Winner Ladies* Putting Contest, Mrs. H. W. Force. Winner Ladies' 
Special Match Play, Mrs. W. Waldeyer. Best Net Score, Noble H. H. Hilp.

All of the winners listed above were awarded beautiful trophies which 
were suitably engraved w^ith date and event. Noble Hermon F. Wilson 
proved himself a real champion and besides receiving the handsome silver 
trophy offered by the Hotel Del Monte he has also been honored by having 
his name engraved on Islam Temple's perpetual trophy which is on display 
at our Club Rooms.

Masonic Night 

California Industries Exposition

Exposition as Masonic Day. Members of the Order of the Eastern Star will 
attend during the day and all Masons are especially invited to be present at 
the evening exhibition. 

Christmas Tree for the 


of the 

Orphan Homes 

of San Francisco 

Dear Children : — 

You know what a good time we had last year. You remember the big 
Christmas Tree and Santa Claus and the presents and the candy and every- 
thing. We are glad to tell you that Santa Claus will again visit the Civic Audi- 
torium, Tuesday evening, December 20, 1921. This time, however, he will 
distribute the presents and candy to the children from the various Orphans' 
Homes of San Francisco. None of these children have a papa or a mamma to 
buy presents for them and so the children of the Nobles of Islam are going to 
stand aside and realize how much more pleasure it is to give than to receive. 
Notices will be sent later giving you details of the affair. The Potentate knows 
you will be glad to give the poor little orphans a good time and will see to it 
that Santa Claus does not forget to visit your home. 

Yours for a Good Time,

Illustrious Potentate, Ararat Temple, Kansas City 

Danger Ahead! 

^TT HE close of 1 92 1 will determine Islam's position in numerical strength 
»fL among the Temples of our Order and from present indications and 
tabulations it appears that we may have to take a back seat to our fair 
competitor in Kansas City, Ararat Temple, over which genial Noble 
Fred C. Hoose presides as Potentate. While w^e have maintained our position 
of eighth in line for quite a few years, our Ararat friends have gone ahead with 
leaps and bounds from fifteenth place in 1919 to ninth in 1921. All good 
things must come to an end emd Ararat is now bucking her most formidable 
competitor. The stone wall of Islam must not crumble under this pressure. 
Let us reinforce ourselves by jumping into seventh place and let our good 
Middle Westerners battle with another for their achievements. Stalwart sons 
of Islam, let us put ourselves on the offensive instead of the defensive. We 
will have three more ceremonials this year, so the opportunity is presented to 
you to have your eligible friend sign the enclosed petition. $107.00 includes 
next year's dues and assessment. Should you know of a Noble of another 
Temple residing permanently within our jurisdiction, he will no doubt be 
pleased if asked to affiliate with us. There is no cost attached to transferring 
membership. Any officer of Islam will assist you in the procedure. But for 
the love of Allah, do it now! As much as we love our Ararat contestants, 
pride in Islam concedes no place.

^J^EFORE the end of the present year the work for the $225,000 Hospital 
I'ffl for Crippled Children in San Francisco will be started and before June 
of next year, when our city will be host to the Imperial Council, it is the 
hope of your committee that the hospital will be completed and in operation. 
This hospital is one of the first five of a number of hospitals that are to 
be built throughout the jurisdiction of the Shrine in North America, the other 
four being located at St. Louis, Minneapolis, St. Paul, Shreveport, La., and 
Montreal, Canada; in accordance with the plan adopted by the Imperial 
Council at Des Moines, last June, on the resolution introduced by Past Im- 
perial Potentate W. Freeland Kendrick of Lu Lu Temple. 


Past Potentate, Islam Temple 

Each of'these hospitals will be built from a standard plan adopted by the 
Board of Trustees of the Shriners' Hospitals for Crippled Children at their 
meeting held at Atlanta, Georgia, on September 23, 1921, and are the result 
of a study and wonderful co-operation of Miss Lillian Carter, Superintendent of 
the Crippled Children's Hospital of the Scottish Rite Masons at Atlanta, 
Georgia, and Noble Heinz, the architect who designed the above buildings. 

The Hospital at Atlanta was built about five years ago and has since been 
in continuous operation, enabling those in charge to observe both the advan- 
tages and defects of their plans and equipment, so thus we are aided by their 

Hospital for Crippled Chfldren (Continued), 
experience to have what is considered by orthopedic surgeons to be a model 
workshop for the correction of the deformities of children. 

The management of this hospital will be under the control of a board of 
seven governors, appointed from the Nobility by the Board of Trustees for a 
term of three years. An orthopedic advisory board composed of Dr. Robert 
Osgood of Harvard University, Dr. McKenzie Forbes of McGill University, 
Dr. John C. Wilson of Los Angeles, Dr. Nat Allison of Washington Univer- 
sity, and Dr. Mike Hoke, Chief Surgeon, Scottish Rite Hospital for Crippled 
Children at Atlanta, Georgia, w^ill recommend to the Board of Trustees the 
name of the orthopedic surgeon to have charge of each hospital and this sur- 
geon will appoint his staff. 

Until the funds of the Imperial Council permit the building of future hos- 
pitals, indigent crippled children under the age of fourteen from any section 
of the Pacific Coast, without restriction as to race or creed w^ill be treated and 
corrected at the San Francisco Hospital without fee or charge of any kind to 
them or their parents or guardians. 

This is a relief work that seems to have been forgotten and it opens up a 
wonderful field for any Noble who wants to help and I am sure that to anyone 
who can see these little pieces of humanity transformed from helpless cripples 
to perfect children, as I have seen them, will feel thankful that they also havo 
the opportunity to assist in a work so fruitful of benefits to those so sorely 

Member Board of Trustees

Make this Resolution 
for 1922 

As Noble of the Mystic Shrine 

ril cut out whiskey, beer and wine 

(Of course by this is never meant 

The stuff that's under ten per cent) ; 

I'll smoke but three cigars a day 

And all my debts will promptly pay; 

I'll lead a strictly moral life, 

Confining all my love to wife; 

I'll try to do the world some good 

And live the life a Mason should. 

All this I vow, and in addition 

I'll never be without petition 

For Scottish Rite or Templar friend 

To sign his name and then I'll send 

The same with check to Islam Shrine 

And have another man in line; 

My Shriner friend from other state 

I'll quickly make affiliate; 

I'll promptly pay my annual dues 

And fair assessment ne'er refuse. 

All this and more I vow to do 

In nineteen hundred twenty-two.

The Assessments must be paid promptly. If convenient to you, would 
suggest that you pay several at once. Many Nobles pay five, ten, or even 
more. Bookkeeping and postage are saved when this is done. Also remember 
that the initial payment of $2.20 is the admittance fee and does not apply on 
your assessment account.

•HAT to many of our Nobles was a questionable and doubtful undertaking has 
proven to be the biggest and most successful enterprise ever attempted by Islam 
Temple, and even though a great financial success the importance of the affair 
aside from the mbnetary gain is that San Francisco has been "sold" for 1922. 

Reflect a moment. Approximately 200,000 people attended the Circus in 
nine days. Think what that means in publicity alone. Nothing like it was ever accom- 
plished in San Francisco before. A most wonderful and inspiring result of which we 
should all be duly proud because every Noble did his part to "put it over," thereby proving 
the great force of unified effort and concentrated action. The success of the afi^air finan- 
cially was beyond expectation and the following figures for the enlightenment of the 
Nobility will doubtless be interesting and gratifying. 

Approximate attendance 200,000 

Total receipts from all sources $167,132.07 

Total Disbursements 79,890.45 

Total Net Profit 87,241.62 

Of this amount the promoters received $42,322.03, Islam Temple received 

Our contract called for 50% of the net profits but by reason of special concessions 
Islam Temple received $2597.56 more than the promoters did, which amount represents 
the net gain realized through operation of "The Oasis." 

Some say the promoters received too much of the net gain, but before reaching 
such a decision consider it from this angle. 

No great project is ever undertaken without expert and experienced help. A 
mountain railroad requires the technical knowledge of skilled engineers; a huge structure, 
the best architects procurable; and the ability and know^ledge involved is beyond the man 
w^ho is not a trained technical specialist. This is just as true in the conducting of the 
event just passed, and without the experience, advice and wonderful help that we bought 
and paid for no such achievement as we have realized could ever have been accomplished. 

Another thing. Our net gain of $44,919.59 comes to us without the investment of 
one five-cent piece. We did not advance a penny and we were absolutely guaranteed 
against any possible loss. How could we possibly get a better proposition? And another 
thing while we are on the subject. We cannot say too much concerning the high per- 
sonnel of the men who came and helped us promote this entire affair. They were men 
of character, ability and reputation and possessed of unquestionable integrity. Inci- 
dentally, they w^ere members of Mecca Temple, New York, and mighty good Shriners 
at that. 


The conduct of the entire Circus was clean and businesslike in every detail. The 
accounting system adopted was complete and accurate and has been audited and verified 
by Hood and Strong, Certified Public Accountants, who have submitted a complete 
analysis and audit, which is now in possession of our Recorder for the perusal of any 
Noble of Islam Temple. 

Meanwhile, let your eyes feast on the evidence w^hich is the result of nine days' 
operation of the Circus and about nine weeks of intense activity of the Committee which 
handled it.

In conclusion, Islam Temple extends most sincere expressions of thanks and grati- 
tude to all those loyal Nobles, w^hose generous response and loyal support made possible 
the achievement we have realized. Personal mention w^ould consume too much space, as 
full recognition by this means would include our entire membership. Remember Nobles, 
great accomplishment is only realized by the unified and concentrated effort of all. 
Continue that spirit, for Islam, for 1922. 


Chairman Entertainment Committee. 


If you have not yet remitted for all Circus tickets that you sold, kindly do so at 
once and thus help your committee to wind up all loose ends. If you still have some 
tickets in your possession which you did not sell, just count and destroy them and notify 
the Shrine Circus Committee, Room 906, Santa Fe Building, so that all records may be 
cleared. All tickets must be accounted for and your immediate attention will be very 
much appreciated. 


Shrine Pilgrimage De Luxe 





^^ILE TEMPLE, of Seattle, Washington, is going to make its fourth pil- 
•Ai grimage to the Orient, touching at points in Japan, China and the Philip- 
J^\ pine Islands, and staging Ceremonials in Manila and Shanghai. 

A cordial invitation is extended to the Nobility everywhere, to 
join us on this most wonderful of all Shrine Pilgrimages. What more delight- 
ful trip could be planned than this, on board a magnificent ocean liner, to the 
mysterious home of the Oriental, and with Shriners and their wives as travel- 
ing companions. 

We expect to sail about January 12 th or 14th on the U. S. Shipping 
Board's $8,000,000 twenty-thousand-ton steamer "The Keystone State," 
under the management of the Pacific Steamship Company, or Admiral Line, 
of Seattle. Round trip, sixty days. We will have about two days each way at 
Yokohama and Kobe in Japan, Shanghai and Hong Kong in China, and five to 
six days in Manila. The most delightful season of the year in the Orient is 
during the months of January, February and March, and we will arrive in 
Manila in time for the Annual Carnival, which is the event of the year in the 

The appointments of'tTkissiniSnli^^a^'^Khitial and unsurpassed by any- 
thing on the Pacific, and sheJis equipped with powerful wireless. There are 
tea rooms, card rooms, reit^i^ma and dining ^ooms, as attractive as those in 
the best hotels of the countiT^, //?rSgompeten t doctoj^tbarber, manicurist, and 
stenographer are a par^fiTthe cre^^^^H^-^ five-piece jazz orchestra. 

With regard to acc<Mnni uJ^li|>^ p iMl3iJ^ « ruIat ioji~stateroom, the roimd 
trip ticket will range from $750.00 to $1(700.00 per person, depending upon 
whether you have room with or without bath. There are a few private suites 
with bath and trunk and maid's room accommodating five or six persons. 

Leaving the middle of January will enable you to get your business 
closed for the year, and straightened away for 1922. Then, Ho! for sixty 
days of unalloyed pleasure, visiting new scenes and peoples, with all the com- 
forts daily of the best-appointed home or hotel. 

Reservations should be made early, as travel to the Orient is aWays 
heavy at that time of the year.
